The OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa |The Latest Pioneering Skin Rejuvenation Face and Body Treatments

October 30, 2014

OleHenriksen Face:Body Spa hydrotherapy tubs 2I was finally was able to check out OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa’s NEW, Micro Photo Face Treatment which uses light heat and energy technology for skin rejuvenation.

Anything having to do with skin rejuvenation – sign me up! It was so great to check out the spa, having not been there in years.  Everything about it is lovely and relaxing from the decor to the  staff. Especially Hayley, my estheticn, who was such a dream that I wanted to adopt her. She was highly educated, informed, nurturing and skilled (and so young!). I was very impressed.

We did a little sampling of their new Micro Photo Face Treatment, a low-impact treatment that brings about high results with no downtime. It can be added on to any facial, takes around 30 minutes and the goal is to aid in photo damage recovery.  Like an IPL without the downtime, peeling or spotting. By pulsating heat and light across the face and/or body, the heat that follows the light pulse coagulates the skin cells and triggers a healing process. Melanin is broken down and collagen is produced by targeting the dermal-epidermal skin layers, resulting in a clearer, smoother and younger looking complexion.

Skin is visibly tightened, wrinkles are reduced, broken capillaries are diminished, skin texture and clarity is significantly improved.

“Light Therapies have come a long way in many years, but nothing to date is on par with this Light Heat Energy technology we will be debuting in the Spa, this Fall. These treatments are going to be the markings to a new wave of Light Therapy skin regeneration treatments. Think of this as work out for your face” -expresses President Vance Soto, Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa. Further, Soto recommends “layering the superior results of Light Energy Treatments with traditional spa treatments, such as our hero Oxygen Facial.”

For the treatment of topical skin issues, the Spa recommends a series 2 treatments for a period of  4 weeks.

Best new stylist in town for hair, Jon Reyman at Spoke and Weal

October 26, 2014

Jon Reyman is one of those top, international, uber-genius stylist super stars that you would be lucky to get your hair cut from.  Lucky me, as I did!  The great news is you can too, at the gorgeous new Spoke and Weal salon on West 3rd street.

I was so excited and had so much confidence going in to my haircut, that I just said “cut it – do whatever” ! Best decision I have ever made. He took my long, witch-tail hair and lobbed it off. I kept blabbing about needing a Brazilian blow out to tame my frizz and kink and he just said NO NO NO. He insisted I drop the chemicals and embrace my natural wave.  He lobbed off around 5 inches of over-processed thinning hair and the result is a lighter, bouncier longer bob, just beneath the shoulders. I love it beyond.

Jon is one of the loveliest people I have ever met. No bullshit, authentic, caring, kind and tuned in to the client.  His credentials are ridiculous – 

A haircut with him will set you back $450. But my advice, save up, do it once or twice a year and you are good to go.  Don’t forget Christine for color at Spoke and Weal.  She’s the bomb.

I HATE taking selfies and this is as good as my pose gets – calling Zoolander!  This is me being really happy about my hair. (Now you know why I don’t take selfies!!!)  This is the day after the cut and I worked to scrunch it up and let go of the super straight blow dried look.

The most exciting new face and body treatments are at OleHenriksen

October 17, 2014

I’m delighted to let you know that the OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa is to launch a series of *NEW* Skin Rejuvenation Face and Body Treatments that utilize light heat and energy technology.

Skin Rejuvenation Face and Body Treatment ($250) 

The Micro Photo Face Treatment ($100)

Catering to the power players of Hollywood since 1975, the OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa is the force behind much of the beautiful and glowing skin seen on and off the big screen. OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa continues to be the destination for healthy and youthful skin and body-care with essential preventative and reactive treatments for all skin types and lifestyles.

Right now, OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa proudly introduces The Skin Rejuvenation Face And Body Treatment and The Micro Photo Face And Body Treatment; combining the luxurious setting of the Spa with cutting edgesuperior light and heat technology.

Both treatments generate instant results with no downtime required. 

The Skin Rejuvenation Face And Body Treatment can be used to significantly improvehyper-pigmentation, vascular lesions, rosacea, acne, fine lines, wrinkles and overall skin tone and clarity, plus hair removal for the face and body. The treatment process stimulates skin cell turnover on the face, neck, arms, legs and buttocks to combat skin degradations and imperfections for beautifully flawless skin from head to toe.

The Micro Photo Face Treatment incorporates the same technology and techniques as the Light Energy Face And Body Treatment, but with a less intensive approach. This treatment is the ideal stepping stone from from traditional spa facials to the superior results of the Skin Rejuvenation Face and BodyTreatment. After one Micro Face And Body Treatment, skin is visibly tightened, wrinkles are reduced, broken capillaries are diminished, skin texture and clarity is significantly improved.

How it works:

By pulsating heat and light across the face and/or body, the heat that follows the light pulse coagulates the skin cells and triggers a healing process. Melanin is broken down and collagen is produced by targeting the dermal-epidermal skin layers, resulting in a clearer, smoother and younger looking complexion.

“Light Therapies have come a long way in many years, but nothing to date is on par with this Light Heat Energy technology we will be debuting in the Spa, this Fall. These treatments are going to be the markings to a new wave of Light Therapy skin regeneration treatments. Think of this as work out for your face” – expresses President Vance Soto, Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa. Further, Soto recommends “layering the superior results of Light Energy Treatments with traditional spa treatments, such as our hero Oxygen Facial.”

A typical treatment will last for around 30 minutes, finished with a relaxing copper cooling mask and specialized serum; only available at the OleHenriksen Face/Body Spa to aid in photo damage recovery.

For the treatment of topical skin issues, the Spa recommends a series 2 treatments for a period of  4 weeks.
